Moments in Limbo

A collection of poems ranging from modern to abstract, when you just need a moment away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.


12. A Note From A Prisoner

I hear them marching through the gates

And shudder at the sounds of their boots

I hear them shouting and cursing our lives

And the banging of bayonets on the tin roofs.


I feel the cold wind drifting within

The spaces between my bones

And think back to forgotten places

Of our families and our homes.


I smell the scent of burning

The charring of innocent flesh

And count on one bony hand

The number of souls that are left.


I taste the sense of despair

That hovers all around the room

And knowing that any of us

Could meet our end any time soon.


I can see the end that is coming

Even though I am now blind

And I weep in silence for all those souls

That have been forgotten and left behind.
